French Toast – Vegan & Gluten-Free (and Delicious!)

I just love this recipe. It’s quick and easy to make, and gives me a new breakfast option for Jed. Or dinner. Either way. (You know “breakfast for dinner” is always a winner!) French toast was always a favorite of mine, and I sorely missed it when we first had … Continue reading

Hot Cocoa – Rock the Universe Version

One month ago today I shared the first of my hot cocoa concoctions: Instant, Dairy and Fructose Free Hot Cocoa! In that post, I mentioned a “rock the universe” hot cocoa that we’d used, but had to shelve because coconut was the main component. Since Jed has Fructose Malabsorption, coconut … Continue reading

Banana Quinoa Pancakes

I’ve got a great “Sunday Brunch” recipe to kick off the weekend! One thing that’s been missing in our FPIES/Elimination Diet/Fructose avoidance world is ‘bready’ items…waffles, bread, pancakes, cupcakes, cookies, etc.  I’ve been experimenting, but it’s hard to make suitable replacements when you’ve had to eliminate so many standard baking … Continue reading

Is Vanilla Fructose Free?

That’s the million dollar question, folks! A couple weeks ago, I was looking for a vegan muffin recipe to try out for Mr. Charm.  As a reminder, he now must avoid dairy, egg, and fructose…I have muffin recipes but they all call for large quantities of sugar, maple syrup, honey, … Continue reading
